3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2008 33 cL bottle. Pours hazy/muddy orange to brown with a colapsing off-white head. Metallic malty, spiced and yeasty aroma. Classic belgian carbonated mouthfeel. Flavour has some dried plum, raisin and figs in a sweet malty flavoured blend. There are classic belgian yeast notes too. A minor metallic note can be sensed in the beginning but disappears again. Finish has a mild bitterness and is dominated by dried fruit notes and a minor herbal note.6-3-7-3-13=3.2
From cask at Edward Wylie. Pours clear and golden amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is mild bubblegum and wheet. Solid malty, yeasty and slight spiced. Sweet and yeasty fruity to a mild spice note into the finish. Classic Belgian with an English cask touch. Not sure it does the beer any good though.6-3-7-3-13=3.2

An amber beer with a huge slightly pink head. The aroma is spicy and hoppy - I pick up coriander, figs, and oranges. The flavor is sweet woody with a herbal note mixing in with som fruit, where I pick out oranges. The mouthfeel is very smooth, and the end woody dry.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle 75 cl) Pours a hazy, warm nutty brown with an off-white head. Aroma of fruit, caramel, diacetyl and alcohol. Fairly full-bodied, some roasted malt and fruit. But this really lacks some complexity to rise above mediocracy. 110507

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Deep amber colour (almost pinkish towards light) with huge creamy, longlasting off-white head. Aroma is apple, caramel, fudge, slight yeast and sweet fruits. Flavour is leathery (probably the yeast in this case), hoppy and caramel malts. Hides the alcohol very well. Once it gets warm the caramellishness gets a twist towards fudge. Really nicely balanced.

Beautiful red to dark amber color; thin creamy head. It has a moderate malty and fruity aroma. Smooth mouthfeel, with a pleasant malt and caramel flavor, medium sweet. There is no alcohol sign, it doesn’t feel like 8% ABV. Surely more pleasant that in the bottle.

Beautiful amber color; creamy head. The aroma is sweet and malty. The flavor as well is quite sweet, with a mix caramel / malt, alcohol feeling and not much bitterness. Between booze and good.
